organization that you trust is going to give you real information and support the kinds of laws that they're supporting rather than one that's maybe a bill posed by the industry that, guess what, wants to be self-regulating. okay, so now we are moving to the driveway, and this is really interesting because we think about low emissions cars as being really important for maybe climate change but they also might be important for breast cancer because when fuel is burning and you guys are familiar with chemicals that, you know, come bust, lower emissions vehicle, one that's more efficient may reduce these pah's in our air and especially in urban areas reduce exposures to those compounds which is really pornts, so thinking about hybrid or electric, we're all lucky enough to take public transit and reduce those overall exposures or -- yeah? >> i believe so, is that true? yes, my science advisors, that's why they're here. >> [inaudible]. >> yeah. there are a lot of carcinogens in diesel exhaust, yeah. >> [inaudible]. >> well, you're still seeing an oil that combusts, some of them we know burn m
to caller to the most sweeping changes to gun laws in years, if not decades, prompting concerns among supporters of gun rights in this country. good morning to you. i'm jon scott. jenna: i'm sure glad you're not stuck between two walls. that would put a damper on the show. jon: would make it difficult to get here and do the research. jenna: we'll try to get answers on that story. hi, i'm jenna lee. in less than an hour the president will outline his efforts to curb goon violence. he is expected to ask congress to ban military-style assault weapons. many of you have questions exactly what those weapons are. we'll talk a little bit about that in the program. also on the list, suggestion to ban high-capacity magazines as well. the white house also made it clear the president will act unilaterally where he can to achieve this agenda. this comes in the wake of the massacre at sandy hook elementary school in connecticut. a tragedy certainly no one wants repeated. how to prevent that type of scenario from happening again is where the gun control debate really intensifies. let's get to chief
are the solutions? well, federal action is yielding some progress. the brady law of 1994 has blocked the sale of firearms over 1.6 million felons, fugitives and other individuals. still, more is needed. proactive approaches include renewing the assault weapons ban, closing the gun show loophole and mandating installation of trigger locks and eliminating influxes of cheaply-made weapons. this doesn't infringe on anyone's right to bear arms in this nation, but we have to do things that are common sense. there are guns that have been outlawed in this nation's history. you cannot get a submachine gun or a sawed-off shotgun, why shouldn't assault weapons be added to that group? also, gun buy-back programs in my state have removed hundreds of guns from the streets and i am considering offering legislation to bring these programs to scale on the federal level to help stem the tide of violence. these measures would undoubtedly save lives. enough is enough. it is time to take action. thank you, madam chairwoman. and i yield back the balance of my time. ms. fudge: thank you so much. i thank the gentlem
. >> what! >> per a straight shooter. president obama made a decisive push for the most ambitious gun law overall this country has seen since the late 1960s. >> i will sit at that disk and sign a directive with law enforcement and schools and mental health professionals and the mental health community some of the tools they need to reduce gun violence. as they are important, they are in no way a substitute for the action of congress. it is time for a universal background check for anyone trying to buy a gun. congress should restore a gun on military-style weapons and a 10-round limit for magazines. we have long recognized that with rights come responsibilities. >> the president signed 23 executive orders and called on congress to act, acknowledging there is no law that can prevent every act of violence. the reactions that the president's proposals are rolling in. the speaker john boehner said they will review the republicans and warned good intentions do not necessarily make good laws. the senator said president obama is abusing his power with the executive orders and the senate will hold

to creating pro-growth tax law that will enable american companies to compete effectively against companies that are domicile in other countries around the world we need a level playing field. the united states has the highest corporate tax rate in the world. also the united states is one of the few countries in the world with a system that is called a global tax system rather than a territorial tax system. the 113th congress we are going to continue to advocate for comprehensive tax reform that broadens the base that reduces corporate tax rates and moves through a competitive territorial system. proctor and gamble pays income taxes and over 100 countries around the world. a business tax reform should provide a level playing field so that each business has the confidence of knowing it pays roughly the same amount of income tax as its competitors in markets with at home and abroad. in terms of deficit reduction, the obvious problem that must be addressed is the problem that currently the united states has been spending at a rate that far exceeds the rate of revenue that we are receiving. the
hundreds of ordinances and state laws. most of which were unconstitutional. and he didn't know what to do. johnson dearly did not want to send troops, united states army troops, into alabama. his fear was that this would precipitate really a second period of reconstruction. just as the marchers were getting ready to head out in defiance of a court or order, wh hundreds of deputies and troopers waiting for them. fruition came to a very subtle problematic plan that johnson had been working on all night, and king had been listening to all night. johnson said, former -- johnson sent former governor, rely collins, who had taken the job to run the federal con sillation service, on a plane at 2:00 in the morning. he was picked up by assistant attorney general john dore, and was driven to the place where king was staying. king came out of the bedroom wearing a robe and two officials gave him a plan. and lyndon johnson had participated in thinking it up. they said, reverend king, we not only have been talking to you, we've been talking to governor wallace, and he doesn't want anymore bloodshed, an

, law was less than that. that was a classic compromise that he did not get. another compromise was his promise to repeal the bush tax cuts for higher income. his goal was couples making more than 200th $50,000 or couples making $200,000 and the fiscal cliff deal did not achieve that. we rented that a compromise. let's go to fort lauderdale,. caller: with respect to not keeping a promise for negotiations with a health kicce -- i think that a somewhat wrong. i have watched the other representatives of congress on tv every day negotiating and debating and putting their facts together. the final decision between nancy pelosi and the head of the sun -- of the senate when they finally came out with exactly what the bill would be -- it was done behind closed doors. the putting together of the bills, people putting in their amendments, was actually done on cspan every day and i watched that. secondly, with respect to these people calling about taking away guns. there is nothing about taking away people's guns. if they go through a background check, they don't need to have a gun. the second ame
expects more. a new law enacted last year is phasing out government subsidies for flood insurance, something homeowners will start noticing when they renew their policies. boch predicts rates could go up 20 to 30% for some this year leaving more homeowners like johnson protected from floods but protesting their rates. >> every check i send in i go "paid unprotest." -- "paid under protests." now, fema tells us linda was actually undercharged for her insurance before the rate jumped and that her current rate is the correct rate. she is considering an appeal but it's now possible her neighbors could face a rate hike, as well. and remember, if you have a consumer complain, give us a call 1-888-5-helps-u. >> a lot of rates went up after katrina and now sandy and this is not going to stop. >> reporter: rates will continue to go up and it's not a bad idea to be prepared that in the event of a flood you wouldn't be fully covered even with insurance. >>> thank you. >>> coming up in the next half hour the sweeping gun control signed by president obama. >
agrees there have been stricter laws to keep guns from the mentally ill, harsher punishments for crimes involving firearms and armed police officers at schools. >> you don't want to take away the second amendment rights for law-abiding citizens who have done nothing but yet they are the ones forced to comply with these laws because violent criminals don't obey laws. >> reporter: looks like the president has the support of most americans. in an exclusive cbs 5 surveyusa poll 71% of people in the bay area support a ban on assault weapons. 67% support limits on how much ammunition a gun could hold. those numbers roughly match a recent national survey. they also found that people have been following this gun debate very closely and it's just another indication that the sandy hook tragedy can translate to action in washington. grace lee, cbs 5. >>> even an 11-year-old knows the obstacles standing in the way of the president's plan. >> in the letter that julia wrote me, she said, "i know that laws have to be passed by congress. but i beg you to t

rights must be absolute, our laws fair, our national beauty preserved, the powerful must not persecute the weak, and human dignity must be enhanced. we have learned that more is not necessarily better, that even our great nation has its recognized limits, and that we can neither answer all questions nor solve all problems. we cannot afford to do everything, nor can we afford to lack boldness as we meet the future. so, together, in a spirit of individual sacrifice for the common good, we must simply do our best. our nation can be strong abroad only if it is strong at home. and we know that the best way to enhance freedom in other lands is to demonstrate here that our democratic system is worthy of emulation. to be true to ourselves, we must be true to others. we will not behave in foreign places so as to violate our rules and standards here at home, for we know that the trust which our nation earns is essential to our strength. the world itself is now dominated by a new spirit. peoples more numerous and more politically aware are craving, and now demanding, their place in the sun--not j
one of the most brazen attempts ever by an american president to unilaterally implement new laws without the consent of the legislative branch. >> i actually think the president, he just doesn't have the guts to admit it, is not a believer in the second amendment. >> there are certain things in his executive orders that are un-american. in some ways they're even fascistic. >> he's a tyrant. he hates the second amendment. and he's un-american. righties are up in arms over the executive action signed by the president of the united states. the president's biggest orders include the nomination of an alcohol, tobacco, and firearms director. he asks for a study on gun violence prevention as well as reports on safety technologies on stolen firearms. apparently, conservatives believe this is tyranny. today vice president joe biden detailed one of the major initiatives of the president's gun proposals. >> how do we make our streets and schools safer? with regard to our streets i believe and the president believes that cops make a difference. we're going to push again for another $4 billio
sizes are searching for ways to cope with this law, and the easiest way to avoid paying these expenses is to hire more temps. see, to qualify for health care coverage under the affordable care act, they have to work for 12 months. they are more likely to hire temp employees. you will try to have fewer than 50 full-time employees so you don't have to rely on obama care. and small businesses aren't alone in not wanting to cover health care costs. if you are a larger business, you'll be much more likely to hire temporary workers rather than full-time employees to avoid paying more for health insurance. even though obama care only kicks in starting in 2014, did you know companies need to start making these adjustments now? because the law has what's known as a 12-month look back or measuring period for the purposes of figuring out how much each company will be on the book for. that means 2013 is going to be a great year for the temporary staffing business. the question is, how do you play it? commercial staffing companies that connect companies with lower skilled workers, companies like tr
fundamental set of values and laws. and, um, before that i couldn't -- at first i'd pinch myself. i just couldn't get over the fact that there was no earlier use, and i used all the databases, and i actually got somebody the legislative reference service at the library of congress to actually back me up on it. can you guys find an earlier example of it? at first there was sort of a deep breath saying, oh, my god, this guy's nuts, but the idea was nobody could find it. then somebody said the founding fathers of harvard university or something, but it was never used as a scripter for the -- descriptor for the people who framed the constitution. it's interesting, also, that it really didn't take off until 1941 when a book was written called "founding fathers." but it was immediately adopted by both sides of the aisle although some of the early uses when you go back and track when it starts being used in the '20s more and more often in replacing the word "framers," it's often used as a negative. the founding fathers never meant for us to have pastel-colored postage stamps, or the founding fa
years, it's time to write about hit in the books of law. the job of the president-- and obama has done this magnificently-- to make america feel its greatness, its ideals to arouse our idealism. it's also the job of a president to write it in the books of law, to get actual legislation passed. that's what a nation is governed by and the second term in my mind is going to hinge on what is written in the books of law. >> rose: two things, one is that there's no question that l.b.j. is the most formidable political human figure i've ever met and if we had only known that person that bob caro knows through his research that i was lucky enough to know when i was 24 years old i think the country would have been felt differently there was one moment that he spoke to a bunch of reporters and he was himself and he never did that again. the teleprompter was a girdle on him. to go back to what bob woodward said, we can't forget that the republicans have attacked the democrats and obama even more fiercely than he's attacked them so it's not like he's out there saying these mean things about them.

to the convention and he is the law and order candidate. it was the first time it had ever been used as a political motto. there are a couple of things that are in the book that are not american but came from overseas. on that sort of threw me was the first person to use social security was winston churchill. in an essay about modern society. he is the one who created the term social security. some people did really well with this. going through a list of who are the most powerful presidents in terms of language, i think that you have to have roosevelt who is way up there. in 1937 he gives a press conference and he is talking about the supreme court and for some of the decisions of this court, if you ask me, they are iffy. and the next day they talk about the president creating the word effete. the five or six years, anytime they said pardon me but this is iffy. of course, slang gets people in trouble. with the wilson is a great waster. one of the things was what could move on. and he used a lot of campaign type of words. he would come up with these accurate sims, you know and the guardians of the
of our laws date back to the 1950's. some to the 1960's. there has to be a way of bringing it up to date. those are things that will have to be negotiated. all be just say it can't managed by a central system in washington where washington decides how many nurses we need, how many farm workers. business will have to play a role and business will have to be the determining factor in order to make this work in a practical way. >> think for a man and that 10,000 people a day retire in the united states, seven days a week. we are a nation with unemployment and with a shortage of people that go to work at specific jobs. the secretary's point is on target. if you try to do this with an overseer of exactly how many left-handed nurses and right- handed carpenters get into the added states, we are doing the wrong thing. we need to do it on demand. if we have an extraordinary need to be competitive, and many, because of the price of energy and the fact the country is probably will have and have access to more energy than anyone else, you will see manufacturing jobs coming back to the united states
the first mother-in-law walk through the marion robertson, ma leaand sasha obama. ma leais 14 and sasha is 11. they are dressed head to toe in jay crew. >> thank you for the fashion. >> i will be keeping up with the fashion all day. >> what do you look to in the past when you look at a second inaugural? >> i think it's another affirmation of the american system, have people out on the mall, see the president and the transfer of power and that's the glory of american system and that's what george washington brought, the first person to give up power, no one thought he was going to do it. even though it's a ceremony but it's a ceremony that is -- it bring's lot to our country and to our nation. >> is it one of those ceremonies, do you agree with beverly and richard that the second time in many respects, speaks more to what people's expectations are of their president than the first time. >> there's been an affirmation of what braun did by a majority of american people. and it turns out, a bigger majority than people thought. many people thought he wasn't going to win at all so this is, i
like anyone else under the law. for if we are truly created equal, then surely the love we commit to one another must be equal as well. >> you know, we also use the word ambitious here, and there's no doubt it is ambitious and is it clear at this point exactly, andy, sort of how he's going to prioritize this? does the white house really think that they can make headway on all of these different items that they put forth in the agenda tomorrow? yesterday? >> the inauguration was very much a to-do list for the president and a very progressive, liberal to-do list as we've just explained. at the top of the list, obviously, is resolving the fiscal crises, the brinksmanship that we continue to go through here in washington. but gun control came up in the speech, newtown was referenced, the quiet lanes of newtown were referenced in the speech. that is on the top of the president's agenda as well. and he brought up climate change, this critical environmental issue, several times. especially compared to the one mentioned in his 2009 inauguration. so i think that the fiscal priorities as we
coolidge the law and order candidate. the phrase was rarely used before but it was the first time it was used as a political motto. again there are various people who i have to list is the best. there are couple of things that are in the book that are not american that came from overseas. israili is a real dark horse which is part of the political language and one that threw me a bit was the first person to use social security was winston churchill. in 1906 in an essay about modern society and what has to be done but he is the one who creates the term social security. there are some people that really do well with it. i think if you had a list of who were the most powerful presidents in terms of language i think you have -- frankly roosevelt has to be way up there. not only the phrases are but if he -- iffy he's talking about the supreme court insist some of these decisions of the supreme court if you ask me our iffy. next day the lead of the papers was in fact the president created the word today iffy and for five or six years anytime a columnist in the tribune said pardon me
think he did. >> he's harvard two degrees -- >> so how could he so misstate the law on guns when in fact scalia and the supreme court in 2008 specifically said a woman in anacostia in a crack house next door could have a handgun? and also saying the president exploited this, could somebody tell him he's actually senator of a very large demographically changing state and not the spokesman for the tea party for, like, you know, the greater tea party, the greater houston chapter of the tea party? i was shocked. >> i was shocked too. frankly, because he seemed to be saying in the senatorial way, cruz, my friend and they barely know each other. cruz went after him over and over and over again. it was a very unusual performance by a freshman senator who doesn't seem to want to get along, wants to start a fire here. >> the problem is mika if this had happened in 2010 i'd say i understand the politics of it. the republican party i'm sorry, we have our backs against the wall. the president of the united states has a 52% approval rating. john boehner has an 18% approval
